While every project is unique, we apply a similar process to ensure you and your team get maximum benefit from you project:
Step 1: Objective Setting – It’s critical to clearly define the objective of the project. This is the most imporatn factor in running a successful Creativity@home project. We work with the project lead(s) to agree and clearly articulate an appropriate objective.
Step 2: Project Planning & Design – Once we’ve clearly defined the objective, we get to work planning and designing your programme.
